Over on his blog, Raph posted a bunch of quotes trying to show how games will become less important in the future of online spaces. His argument boils down to the fact that non-game online spaces are getting more attention (particularly more investment money). The rise of places like MySpace.com has shown that these spaces can be hugely popular. Does this really spell the doom of games?
Not really. There are some important reasons why non-game online spaces won’t dominate all.
